Staff was friendly and helpful and the rooms were a great value. My employees said this is one of the better hotels that they have stayed in a long time. It would be nice if hotels could provide some type of on the go breakfast to guest who must be report to work at 4:00 am.

We were traveling Route 66 and this was one of the hotels we stayed at. We came in late and the clerk helped us find a place to get dinner at. The place was clean and gave you a feel for traveling route 66. The breakfast area was small, but the food was good. I would stay here again.

The staff was very friendly, bed was excellent, the free breakfast was good. Liked being able to park right in front at our room. Made it so much easier to unload and load our vehicle. Only concern was the street noise, but not too bad.

You could almost hear Elvis in the room next door, hotel script says he said/passed through some time. For UK readers this BW Inn has the feeling of the 'Cross Roads' TV programme, but lacking a Benny!. A great welcome from the staff, friendly efficient and informed. it was blazing hot so we all enjoyed the open air pool (OK... More

It was comfortable and clean. AND it took our greyhound..... wish the extra cost wasn't so high. Our dog is clean and quiet. Loved being able to drive up to the door of our room! No Big Box. The staff was friendly.

Great place! We enjoyed our stay in this quaint motel. Enjoyed the pool and outdoor facilities and the breakfast was one of the best we have tasted with the young Lady who took care of it being one of the nicest and most courteous we have seen. The service was great and the décor was great.

Great service. Rooms were small. The have chairs outside of the rooms which encourages people to sit outside your door late at night or early in the morning, while smoking, talking loudly. That I didnt like at all.

This was the second Route 66 motel we stayed in. I preferred the 1st motel only because it was in a small town and you had more of the 66 experience feel to it. Here you have a more modern city surrounding the motel so you lose the illusion. However having said that I would still stay at this motel... More

We are sorry about the Wi-Fi we will take a look at the speeds in our handicap accessible rooms to try and boost... More

We were looking forward to a night in this charming Route 66 hotel. We were greeted warmly, and the two room suite was perfect for our needs, but the room had such a smell of damp that it remained in our nightclothes days later. The bed was fairly comfortable, but again, that damp smell. The room was clean, but needed... More

I recently stayed at Rail Haven for 3 nights in one of the original 1937 units. While retaining all the charm of the late 1930's the rooms have been modernized especially the beds and plumbing fixtures. The lobby is spacious and they serve a great hot breakfast. Staff are friendly and helpful. The place was full because of the Route... More
